First Appearance

Willie made his first appearance in the season 2 episode Principal Charming. Originally, the character was just written as an angry janitor and Dan Castellaneta was assigned to do the voice. According to the DVD commentary for the episode, Castellaneta first tried using a Spanish voice, which the writers felt was too clichéd. He then tried an angry Swede, which was also rejected. Finally, he used an angry Scotsman, which was deemed appropriate enough and was used in the episode. Originally thought by the producers to be a one-shot appearance, Willie has since become a common recurring character. Principal Charming is the fourteenth episode of The Simpsons second season, airing on February 14, 1991. ... Daniel Louis Castellaneta (born September 10, 1958) is an Emmy award winning American voice actor and comedian best known for providing the voice of Homer Simpson and other characters on the animated series The Simpsons. ...

Willie's roots

In many ways, Willie is an unpleasant, though harmless character. He has claimed to originate from several different places in Scotland (including, but not limited to: Glasgow, Loch Ness and "North Kilt-town"), and frequently gives contradictory accounts of his past life before arriving in Springfield. These contradictions are referenced in "The President Wore Pearls" when Willie tells a story of working at a mine that caved in, saying, "No one made it out alive, not even Willie!" A darker side to Willie emerges when Homer Simpson hires a private investigator to spy on Lisa, who, on seeing Willie, remarks on his resemblance to "The Aberdeen Strangler", at which Willie nervously gulps and scurries away. Willie believes he ran over a kid with a lawnmower once, as hinted in an episode when he runs over a red dodgeball, mistakes the pieces of the ball for blood, and says, "Oh no! I've shredded a child! Again!"

Willie has been seen to instigate a soccer riot with some previously unseen Scottish friends, and evidence from the show indicates he is a fan of Aberdeen F.C. in the Scottish Premier League. He has also betrayed Milhouse Van Houten by allowing the boy to confide in him, and then donning his distinctive spectacles and performing unkind impressions of him behind his back, much to the merriment of the school staff. One of Lisa's main motivations for doing well at school is so that she does not end up like Willie.

Willie claims to be deaf from a mishap with a boiler and reads lips (though somewhat unsuccessfully), though this is seen only in one episode and has had instances where he could clearly hear people without reading their lips[citation needed]. He has also revealed that he wears contact lenses and has crippling arthritis in his index fingers, which he got from Space Invaders in 1977. When Chief Wiggum admitted that Space Invaders was indeed an addictive video game, Willie looked surprised and said, "video game?" In The President Wore Pearls, Superintendent Chalmers referred to Willie as "an escaped mental patient". Space Invaders is an arcade video game designed by Tomohiro Nishikado in 1978. ...

Willie, along with the members of the Van Houten family and Kent Brockman, is one of the few Springfield residents who actually has eyebrows; moreover, he is one of the only two characters to have synophrys, the other being Maggie Simpson's rival, Baby Gerald - 'the baby with one eyebrow'.

Willie, along with several other Springfielders, was originally an illegal alien who stood to be deported once "Proposition 24" was passed. All of the illegal immigrants except him succeeded in getting their citizenship before the Proposition was approved, and he was its only victim. Of course, he is seen back in Springfield in later episodes. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into illegal immigration. ...

Life goals

Willie's limited ambitions in life are beautifully captured in one episode. We see a sleeping Willie snoring in his cold and empty shack with an empty whisky bottle next to him. We then see that the "real" Willie is actually sleeping in a puddle next to a bottle of turpentine, dreaming of the above scenario. He also dreams of one day owning a "crystal slop bucket" for his mop. Shacks are most often used for storage or have been abandoned. ...

In a later episode called My Fair Laddy, Lisa made Willie into a refined gentleman, getting him a new job as maitre d' at the snooty and exclusive restaurant "The Gilded Truffle". Willie was miserable in his refined role, and realized he was happier as a janitor. This suggests that Willie's job as a custodian does not seem to bother him, and it is likely that he is simply a naturally angry man, possibly playing into the stereotype of Scots being fiery-tempered and quick to anger. My Fair Laddy is the twelfth episode of The Simpsons seventeenth season. ... The maître dhôtel, literally master of the hall, in a suitably staffed restaurant, is the person in charge of assigning customers to tables in the establishment, and dividing the dining area into areas of responsibility for the various waiters on duty. ...


He also has been saving up generic grease in the school for his retirement. He aptly names it his "retirement grease".


Willie's role

His years of heavy work have given him amazing strength and a very muscular physique, which has been observed many times; for example, he rescues Bart from a marauding timber wolf by wrestling it into submission. Much like Ned Flanders, though, his physique in unremarkable when he is clothed, and seemingly morphs as soon as he is partially nude. Trimber Wolf can refer to Canis lupus lycaon, the timber wolf Timber Wolf, a DC Comics character the Minnesota Timberwolves, a National Basketball Association franchise In the BattleTech universe, a TimberWolf is a type of Clan Battlemech. ...

Springfield Elementary

Bart is more than willing to make Willie the butt of frequent jokes. In the episode Girly Edition, which involved creamed corn and a pump, actually destroyed Willie's tarpaper shack on the edge of campus and broke his leg. Willie sought a violent revenge, but Lisa smoothed things over. Girly Edition is the 21st episode of the ninth season of The Simpsons // Spoiler warning: After Groundskeeper Willie confiscates his skateboard, Bart decides to get back at him by filling up his shack with a tankerfull of creamed corn as he sleeps. ... Lisa Marie Simpson is a character in the animated television series The Simpsons, voiced by Yeardley Smith; Lisa is the only character Smith voices on a regular basis. ...


For the most part, Willie gets very little respect from anyone. Principal Skinner attempted to punish Nelson for theft by getting him to perform what he refers to as "the lowest, most degrading work known to man, janitorial work." Willie expresses that he is right there listening. Nelson has also taken shots at Willie, using a rake to launch a beehive at Willie yelling, "Hey Willie, catch the football!" Willie apparently believed it was a football and got stung by bees.


According to Superintendent Chalmers, Willie is an escaped patient from a mental hospital that Principal Skinner hired. According to Willie, he has worked at the school for 20 years, just as long as Principal Skinner, so he was likely hired soon after Skinner began his job. Skinner even once made Willie the village idiot at the school's Medieval Festival, and was forced to sit in a small raised cage where the children would continuously throw tomatoes at him; Willie then got his revenge by putting swarms of rats in the pool-sized pie the children almost ate. In the television series The Simpsons, Springfield Elementary School is the name of the school that Bart Simpson, Lisa Simpson and their fellow peers attend. ... In the television series The Simpsons, Springfield Elementary School is the name of the school that Bart Simpson, Lisa Simpson and their fellow peers attend. ...


Willie was once given the job of teaching Bart Simpson in "On a Clear Day I Can't See My Sister." Lisa had taken a restraining order against Bart, so he couldn't legally go to the same school. Willie became Bart's teacher because, according to Principal Skinner, Willie's shack is the only place on school grounds "outside all laws of Man and God." Bart and his sister Lisa as news anchors. ... On a Clear Day I Cant See My Sister is the eleventh episode of The Simpsons sixteenth season. ...


In another episode Willie was asked by Skinner what he had done during summer vacation, and he replied that he had made a fortune building a software company but blew it all at the track. Whether this was the truth or simply sarcasm is open to interpretation.


Community involvement

Sometimes Willie wears a kilt, usually due to formal occasions; a true Scotsman, he does not wear anything underneath. At Scotchtoberfest, Bart attaches a number of balloons to Willie's kilt, which leads to the kilt flying up. The gathered crowd gasps and a woman faints. In response, Willie cried, "Ach! 'Tis no more than what God gave me, you puritan pukes!" (a reference to the song "The Scotsman", by Bryan Bowers). In the second part of Who Shot Mr. Burns?, Willie has his kilt on while being interviewed by the police. During the interview Willie uncrosses and then recrosses his legs. In response, the officers point a gun at Willie with a warning to stop doing that. The scene was a spoof of the interrogation of Catherine Tramell (Sharon Stone) in Basic Instinct. Formal Highland regalia, kilt and Prince Charlie jacket for Black tie. ... The Simpsons television series has used many interesting words and phrases over the years, the most famous of which is Homers saying: Doh!, which is referred to in scripts, as well as several episode names, as annoyed grunt.

Family issues

Parents

In the episode Monty Can't Buy Me Love, Willie is re-united with his mother and father on the banks of Loch Ness in Scotland where Mr. Burns leads a successful expedition to catch the Loch Ness Monster and bring it to Springfield. Willie tells Homer Simpson that his parents own a pub which still has the same pool table on which he was conceived, born, and educated. This is somewhat of a contradiction to another episode that Willie claims that he hails from a seemingly stereotypical and made up city called "North Kilt-town". This was named by Homer as a ruse to avert Willie's attention. Monty Cant Buy Me Love is the twenty-first episode of The Simpsons tenth season. ...

Homer Jay Simpson is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons, voiced by Dan Castellaneta. ...


However, in the episode I Love Lisa, Willie says his father was hanged for stealing a pig, and in the first part of Who Shot Mr. Burns? he states that his father's body was thrown in the bog, instead of receiving a proper burial. Willie has come from a long line of underachievers as shown in the episode My Fair Laddy when he reveals his grandfather's job was to check the safety of mines before the canary was sent down.

Lookalikes

Willie has an older cousin named Gravedigger Billy. At the elementary school in the adjacent town of Shelbyville, there is a female groundskeeper who strongly resembles Willie. Willie's archenemy is Seamus, another groundskeeper that speaks with a heavy Irish accent. The two blame each other for whatever goes wrong with their lives, and engage in fistfights every now and then. Seamus resembles Willie, except that he is taller, thinner, and wears a hat. Shelbyville is a fictional city on the television series The Simpsons that is located adjacent to Springfield. ...


Personal issues

Life as a Scotsman

Willie's nationality is also hinted to be the cause of his hostility. An example from the episode Milhouse Doesn't Live Here Anymore: Milhouse Doesnt Live Here Anymore is the twelfth episode of The Simpsons fifteenth season, airing on February 15, 2004. ...

Willie: "Brothers and sisters are natural enemies! Like Englishmen and Scots! Or Welshmen and Scots! Or Japanese and Scots! Or Scots and other Scots! Damned Scots! They ruined Scotland!"
Skinner: "You Scots sure are a contentious people."
Willie: "You just made an enemy for life!"

In Lard of the Dance Homer pretends to be a Scot to distract Willie. When Homer claims to hail from "North Kilt-town", Willie responds, "No foolin'!? I'm from North Kilt-town! D'ye know Angus McLeod?". This goes on until Homer accuses Willie of not being Scottish and makes a mess of the situation with his ignorance by saying, "Wait a minute. There's no Angus McLeod from North Kilt-town. Why, you're not from Scotland at all!". At that point, Willie realizes what Homer is up to and, enraged, physically attacks Homer, accusing him of stealing his "retirement grease". In this episode he is also seen cleaning himself with Ajax and Brillo Pads. The Wars of Scottish Independence were a series of military campaigns fought between Scotland and England in the late 13th and early 14th centuries. ...

Hobbies and vices

Willie's hobbies include ultimate frisbee and videotaping couples (Homer Badman) in cars, something which proves to the benefit of Homer Simpson when he is later wrongfully accused of sexual harassment. He says: "I didn't come forward, because in this country it makes you look like a pervert... But every single Scottish person does it!".

Quotes and special appearances

One of his best-known quotes is "There's nary an animal alive that can outrun a greased Scotsman!". He was also responsible for labeling the French as "Cheese-eating surrender monkeys!", which was referred to in the Stephen Clarke novel A Year in the Merde. Additionally, he has educated others on the role of various forms of Scottish dress: "Now the kilt was only for day-to-day wear. In battle we donned a full-length gown covered in sequins. The idea was to blind the opponent with luxury!"

Willie has since appeared in many episodes but only as a minor character, usually with a few lines of dialogue per episode. He was featured prominently in the Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace segment in Treehouse of Horror VI, in which he is portrayed as a parody of Freddy Krueger. Willie had a large role in Treehouse of Horror V in which he was killed by an axe in every segment, leading to his 4th wall-breaking exclamation "Ach, I'm bad at this!". He would also figure prominently in the season 9 episodes The Joy of Sect and Girly Edition, season 10's Monty Can't Buy Me Love (in which he, Homer and Mr. Burns go to Scotland and we meet his family) and the season 15 episode The President Wore Pearls.
